The Tamron 80-210 mm f/ 3.8-4 Adaptall-2 model 103A is a telephoto zoom lens for 35 mm SLR cameras popular in the 1970-90s (via the interchangeable Adaptall-2 mount).
The lens features a push-pull design (focal length is changed by pushing or pulling the focus ring, and in so doing the lens length is changing). It is multicoated.
At a focal length of 210 mm it enables you to take 1:2.8 macro scale pictures.
As compared with the first variant (Tamron 80-210 mm f/ 3.8-4.0 model 03А), this lens is more compact (no retractable hood) and shows improved optical characteristics. The ultimate variant of the lens (Tamron 70-210 mm f/ 3.8-4.0) features similar optical characteristics, but a simplified build.
